Student learning and faculty productivity were both increased during the delivery of a course which integrated working adult students in a distance learning section with traditional students in a blended learning section. Small group assignments combined with graded discussions and traditional testing were used to promote and assess student learning using teaching tools available in the Desire2Learn course management system. The success of the pilot course was demonstrated by high levels of both student and faculty satisfaction.
